Unsteady non-Newtonian blood fow characterized by the generalized power-law model subjected to an external magnetic feld together with heat transfer through stenosed artery has been developed. The arterial segment is assumed to be a cylindrical tube and the arterial wall is considered to be fexible having cosine shaped stenoses a condition due to the abnormal narrowing of a blood vessel. The full equations comprising the governing equations of motion, heat equation, the initial and the boundary conditions are solved using numerical procedure involves the discretization of the equations using the Marker and Cell (MAC) method, where pressure along the artery is calculated iteratively using the Successive-Over-Relaxation (SOR) technique. The results demonstrated through the simulations that under the infuence of magnetic feld, the blood temperature distribution over the entire arterial segment increases. The present results also predict the effects of the generalized power-law index and the Prandtl number on the distribution of blood temperature.
